Maharashtra BJP MLA Ashish Shelar sought to know why state Congress chief Nana Patole took nearly two years to level the phone-tapping allegation against the previous Devendra Fadnavis government, even as the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) dispensation in the state was formed in November 2019. Congress is part of the three-party MVA government led by Uddhav Thackeray.

As per news report of NDTV, Mr Patole had earlier alleged that his phone was tapped in 2017 when the Fadnavis-led government was at the helm. He levelled the same allegation during the recently-held monsoon session of the state legislature. He said his phone was tapped on the pretext that it belonged to a drug peddler. The state government has now formed a three-member committee to probe Mr Patole's phone-tapping allegation. Speaking to a regional news channel, Mr Shelar said, "Patole has levelled the allegation that his phone calls were tapped by the previous Fadnavis government. However, he has made the allegation two years after the formation of the MVA government. What was he doing in the last two years?"
